Before going into the details of this guide and explaining, in detail, how to recover INPS password, it is necessary to make a necessary premise concerning the methods of accessing the online services of the National Institute of Social Security.
You must know, in fact, that since October 1, 2020 the INPS PIN required to access the online services of the institution in question is no longer issued and has been replaced by SPID credentials, a unique identification system that offers citizens and businesses the opportunity to access certain services of the Public Administration (and not only) using the same credentials.
Users who have obtained the INPS PIN before October 2020 will be able to continue using it during the transition phase from the PIN to the SPID code (which will end on 30 September 2021) and, consequently, will also be able to recover their password. Furthermore, the PIN may still be requested and used by all those users who cannot obtain SPID credentials, such as minors, non-EU citizens who do not have an identity document recognized by SPID and persons subject to protection, curatorship or support administration.
Finally, I would like to point out that users who have requested and obtained the INPS PIN will be able to take advantage of the PIN reset function only if they have successfully completed the first access, by changing the initial PIN. In case of loss of the initial PIN, it is necessary to revoke the PIN and, subsequently, request another one or, considering what has been said above, create the SPID.
How to recover INPS SPID password
To enter the INPS site, use your own SPID code but do not remember the password associated with the latter? In this case, it is necessary to start the password reset procedure on the official website of the certifying body (called Identity Provider) that provided you with the SPID credentials.
